Bob Taylor, National Uniform Manager for Royal Mail, was declared the winner in the Workwear Section of The Business Manager Awards presented as part of the Workwear and Corporate Clothing Show in Birmingham (1st April).

The award was presented by fashion and workwear design icon, Jeff Banks, at a glittering award ceremony held at the Hilton Metropole Hotel at Birmingham's NEC.

Speaking of the awards, Bob said, “The new uniform has had great feedback from our wearers and our customers, and it's really gratifying to have the team's hard work recognised by industry professionals as well.”

Bob and his team have been working on the re-design of uniforms issued to postmen and women across the UK. The new range is currently being worn by operatives in the Brighton, Redhill and Thames Valley areas and will eventually be rolled out to 150,000 wearers later this year.

The most obvious change has been the colour scheme, which is now red and dark grey, but there have also been some changes to the specification, for instance patch pockets on trousers, an improved storm-proof coat plus better cut and improved fabrics.

The new clothing range, supplied by Dimensions Corporatewear of Castle Donington, Leicestershire, builds on the strengths of current range with improvements made as a result from feedback from postmen and women out in the field.

Sarah Allan of Dimensions Corporatewear, who has worked on the project with the Royal Mail team, said, “It is a real honour for Dimensions to be recognised alongside Bob and the Royal Mail team. We're really excited about the prospect of rolling out to the remainder of the wearers. A lot of hard work and detailed research has been undertaken to ensure the garments are smart, comfortable and practical as well as meeting the wearers' expectations in terms of performance.”
